Popular British movie and mini series Downton Abbey is causing a revival of late teens and early 1920s style lace, beaded, and fringe dresses, as well as pretty headbands, cloche hats, T-strap heels, and long necklaces. We searched for new dresses with elements of the past and found some that are ideal for a daytime tea or dinner party at Downton Abbey. Our search turned up with 1920s inspired dresses sourced from the USA, as well as some for UK shoppers, and Australia.
Choose a light and airy drop waist lace dress for a semi-formal party or wedding. Add a cloche hat, gloves, and small bag to complete your ’20s look. Go here to shop more daytime / non-flapper dresses. If you need plus sizes, more of those are here.
For the grandeur of the evenings, don an all-over beaded gown, crystal headband, long white gloves, and T-strap party shoes.
